Superb food on the Valentine's Day pre-fix menu! My wife had the wine pairings, and I had dinner without them. We also had a French Kiss drink which is now my all-time favorite. Amazing food, as usual.
My only food complaint was that the lobster tasted a little old. Overall, the service was excellent, except for one staff, who repeatedly removed dishes as my wife was chewing her last bite. She needs some remedial training.

Alan Wong's is a class act from the front to the back of the house, the management, and of course the food. We celebrated my wife's birthday 3 times so far at AW (framed one of the custom menus), and brought an out-of-town guest (who also LOVED it). They are also very kid friendly. AW will always be one of our favorites.

The food and drinks was great! Just wished the service was a little bit more energetic. Troy was our server that day. Barely saw him through the night. Only for our order and when we had to pay.

Excellent as usual. Enjoyed the snapper and the day boat risotto. Both were flawlessly executed as was the tuna stack appetizer.

The 4 of us were celebrating a birthday. Three of us ordered 3 appetizers a piece. Our birthday boy ordered the crab cakes for his appetizer and the ONAGA for his main course. All 4 of us rated the dishes OUTSTANDING!! Our favorite appetizer was the TACOS--Pure heaven!!

The meal was delicious!! The taste of the food was really good. It wasnt typical but unique and I think it opened parts of my tastebuds that I nevered used before. Everyone was really nice and they did not rush you.

My wife and I shared several appetizers which were all awesome. The whole tomato salad was unbelievable and I'm so happy I tried it. My steamed tilapia however was rubbery and I could only eat 2 bites before putting it aside. It was disappointing but to be honest I was so full from drinks and appetizers so it wasn't a disaster. We made a recovery with the shave ice dessert and overall it was a great dinner. Hope to return but next time I'll be more careful about the entree selection.

Wonderful; did not disappoint. First dining here over 20 years ago; so enjoyed it we bought Alan Wong's first, then second cookbooks and have been cooking some of the recipes ever since.
Have dined at other Alan Wong properties, as well.
The original Honolulu restaurant is as good as our first experience. The food was fresh, perfectly prepared, and quick from the kitchen. The wait and supporting staff was welcoming and knowledgable.
Though in an unassuming location, definitely give this a try; you'll not be disapointed.

Alan Wong’s never disappoints. The service and food are always on point. The ginger crusted fish entree, the pineapple shave ice and the chocolate crunch bar desserts are not to be missed. The tasting menu is another winner. We have much love for this place.

I loved the food and the service, it is a little small so the tables are close together and it was hard to talk to each other even though we sat across the table because it was loud.

Overrated. Past it’s prime. There are much more interesting and inventive restaurants in Honolulu today. Food was good but not worth the hype. This was our third visit so comments not arbitrary.

Pork shrimp dumplings did not wow. Red snapper was delicious. Salmon over risotto was too fishy for my husband

Have dined here several times previously. The food was good. Service and ambiance were not up to standard. Our drink orders didn't come until our appetizers cam out. Waiter didn't remember our drink order as soon as stepped away from table and had to repeat. Not very personalized over all. We were sat in the corner of the smaller front room. Would request another table next time, although we did book only a couple of days in advance.

So relaxing. We just had some champagne at the bar and there was no stress about getting to our table. Dinner was amazing especially the short ribs, which we ordered with the stir fried vegetables rather than rice. We were sad that the tomato salad was not available. Great service at both bar and table.

Outstanding meal and impeccable service from all of the staff, but particularly Mark, the sommelier, and Aaron, our server. We both ordered the Prix Fixe menu, one with the wine pairings and one without.

Service is awesome! Food is delicious and creatively presented. I went with a group of 10; I would suggest not more than a party of 6, as Alan's space is more on the intimate/close side. But fine if group is small. Save room for dessert. After dinner (de-caf) coffee is a special roast - and delicious.
